What Does Enough Really Mean?

Free Verse

Nolan Perry, via Unsplash

All I ever wanted to know
was that I could be enough.

But I went for miles and miles
and sought proof after proof
of being enough—
but I ended up nowhere
and proof was just nothing
more than a way to sabotage
my way forward, to keep me
stuck in a trap
controlled by how I was
perceived by the world.
